Fairfield by Marriott is designed to suit the needs of both business and leisure travellers
The hospitality business in Nepal is booming as more international players are entering the market. With properties in over 110 countries, the Marriott chain of hotels are now in Nepal with the first one being Fairfield by Marriott in the heart of Kathmandu, Thamel.
The hotel opened in March and has been an ideal property for both business and leisure travel. Fairfield by Marriott is ideally located in Thamel, which is the tourist hub of Kathmandu and home to a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants and close to Durbarmarg which is one of the main city centres of Kathmandu.
Although an international brand with the standards and familiarity of a Marriott property, a lot of effort has also been made to showcase the culture and heritage of Nepal. There are paintings/sketches in every room that depict the local customs and tradition of Kathmandu valley.
Designed to suit the varying needs of their customers, Fairfield by Marriott outlines a fresh dimension of luxury. Set up as a business hotel, there are two types of deluxe rooms in the hotel.

The rooms also offer a wealth of amenities from luxurious bedding to spacious work desks, marble bathrooms and 24-hour room service.
Kava Restaurant located within the hotel is a 24 hour restaurant that serves Indian and International cuisines. The restaurant can be visited by anyone and is the only restaurant that opens after hours in the Thamel area. They serve a delicious breakfast and lunch buffet where the items change every day. The late night menu offers patrons a range of soups, Indian and continental main courses and range or rice dishes. The all-day dining restaurant also has a-la-carte menu option.
